Eric Stern, Oak Island N.C. Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement A photographer all my life, I try even with all the new tech. to focus on the image. I have always believed that if the image is not interesting than it is not a good photograph. Retouching and a few old darkroom tricks are okay but i like to print what i saw at the time I saw it! My advise to people has always been " take a million photographs in a lifetime and you will get a hand full of images that are good" always keep your eyes open!!
